Now the pot is not just AMD, even NVIDIA comes out to "fill the knife", indicating that their GPU processor will not be affected by the vulnerability.
The leaks of so much noise, especially for Intel, undermine the security image of its own processor, the follow-up will be faced with a possible lawsuit, the issue of compensation, 2018 year experience this test. It is because of this thing, yesterday Intel shares one, while rival AMD, NVIDIA shares rose a lot. AMD here because of the different architecture, they survived, and NVIDIA naturally will not encounter this problem, because the accident is the X86 processor, not related to the GPU.
Considering that the impact of the event is too great, NVIDIA still posted notices on the official website, emphasizing that their core business is GPU computing. They firmly believe that their products are immune to the exposed security holes, that is to say, they will not be affected. In addition, NVIDIA is upgrading the GPU driver to slow the problem.
But the NVIDIA in this loophole incident also is not to say nothing, the core GPU business is not affected, but they still have the ARM processor business, because the vulnerability also affects ARM processor, so they have been analyzed which SoC will be affected by the vulnerability, appropriate measures are taken to solve this problem, they are safe page NVIDIA user attention.
